The Deliverable of P16371 MSD Team

It's expected that this MSD team designs and constructs a device that is capable of meeting the customer requirements as outlined in the problem definition. Specifically, this means that the device must create a stable liquid meniscus, oscillate the meniscus at a frequency of approximately 100 Hz, be capable of utilizing multiple different working fluids, be able to interface with the other subsystems, and it must be reliable. In order to fulfill the customer requirements, it's also expected that the MSD team designs a computer program that allows for adequate control of the device. Therefore, upon completion of MSD II the customer will receive a device that meets his requirements along with a program that is capable of supplying the necessary controls. It's the customer's desire that the device which is being designed and constructed by this MSD team will enable him to conduct his doctoral research.
